Hari anand The Ultimate Designer

W hen you begin, you begin with ABC. And though established Kochi based designer, Hari Anand needs no beginning in fashion his latest collection is surprisingly called Alphabets, 2011. It will be showcased at a preview on December 4 at Gokulam Convention Centre, where top national models will catwalk the collection. It is Season 3 for the designer with FTV and the ensemble is a collaboration with New York based caricaturist and illustrator, Patti Stren.
The six yards turn absolute chic in the collection. The linen sari makes a novel appearance. Shirts, trousers, skirts in linen are what this fabric has seen so far and now comes Hari's original take on it- as a sari. “The fabric is imported and has precise digital prints on it. When draped it falls gracefully and weighs just 90 gms.”
Enhancing the material are Patti Stren's playful prints. “A new openness has come to stay in the world,” says Hari about the naughty prints, which blend humour, fun and mischief. After all fashion is about the times and this collection is truly with it. Stren, whose first venture with Anand saw raffish illustrations on dating and flirting tips, carries the theme ahead in this collection too. The haute linen saris make perfect cocktail wear.
